New iTunes Connect App Management Features for Developers
Apple has announced two new iTunes Connect app management features for developers.
We are pleased to announce the following new features to help manage your apps on iTunes Connect.
"Metadata Rejected" Added to App Review Status.
You can now resolve metadata issues that have been identified by the App Review team without having to recompile and resubmit a new binary for review.
If you submit an app and the App Review team determines that any metadata items are not compliant with our guidelines, your app status will change from In Review to Metadata Rejected. Metadata items include your app name, keywords, rating, or category. Screenshots and icon images are also considered part of a metadata rejection if they are determined to violate the App Store Review Guidelines. Rejection details for apps with the Metadata Rejected status will be available in the Resolution Center.
To resolve an issue, you will need to edit the metadata in iTunes Connect. Your existing binary will then be reused for the review process.
Bundle ID Is Now Editable Before Binary Submission.
If you have not submitted a binary for review, and your app is not using Game Center or the iAd Network, you will now be able to edit your app's assigned Bundle ID in iTunes Connect.
To change your app's Bundle ID, click Edit next to your Bundle ID in the Manage Your Applications module.
